History – Where We’ve Come From
The three co-founders of BBOXX met at Imperial College London while studying Electrical and Electronics Engineering. All three had travelled in the developing world and recognised the challenge posed to community and business development by the unreliable electrical supply. They saw potential in the lack of existing infrastructure to create a sustainable, environmentally responsible solution to the problem. In response, the trio founded a successful student charity, which exposed the potential for off-grid solar solutions in the developing world. BBOXX is the resulting for-profit venture and started in March 2010.
Vision – Where We’re Going
BBOXX will provide 20 million people with electricity by 2020. By satisfying the genuine energy needs of individuals and families from home lighting to phone charging, BBOXX helps the developing world to climb the Energy Ladder. With BBOXX products, customers have the ability to have a western energy experience off-the-grid and in rural areas. Through a vast network of shops and outlets, BBOXX focuses on giving access to the fundamental need of access to electricity combined with superior customer service. Within this network, we provide hundreds of jobs to local employees and create a retail market unlike anything seen in the developing world.
